Makeshift Bidet

June 16th, 2017 · 11 Comments

I saw this toilet on a home tour yesterday and stopped in my tracks. What is that?! A kitchen sink sprayer attached to a toilet?! To help them spray their bums? I mentioned this to another agent and he said, “Oh, I have that on my toilet.” What?!?! He then said, “It’s to spray off reusable diapers when they’re dirty. I have a 2-year-old.” That might be handy, but gross just the same.

    It’s better than the old way of doing that: scraping off the “solid waste” (yucky term) into the toilet.

    It would probably be good for cleaning the toilet bowl!

    These toilet tank bidets might be nice to have in Phoenix, but you probably wouldn’t want to use one if you live in the north. Especially from November thru May.

    fyi, lots of things are kind of gross when you live with a 2 year old!

    This is especially nauseating because of the bucket next to the toilet.

    Very common in Thailand and I would expect other countries where toilet paper is not the norm.

    Wait – WHY do you want to do that to a disposable diaper? Don’t you just throw the stinker away? I used cloth, and yeah used to wash them out in the toilet, but I also washed the diapers in the washer…

    What’s gross about a bidet? When you really think about it, using toilet paper without spray is more gross.

    Nothing gross about a real bidet. But if you’re using a kitchen sprayer, it’s likely that water will spray all over and at the very least on your hand due to gravity unless you do the “from behind” approach with the sprayer. No thank you.

    I thought it was an enema attachment.
